First beach after driving from the city.
Natal doesn't get much of a mention in the guidebooks but it's a pretty good place. Yesterday (Sunday) the place was lively, the beach was full of Brazilians, the restaurants busy, it was a nice place to be, probably nicer than the places the guidebooks do mention which are often full of the same people we've seen in other places. Today we've had a great fun day in a beach buggy on the beaches and in the dunes around Natal. The driver was excellent speeding up and down the faces of the dunes, spinning the back end around, pointing out interesting things and playing some excellent music on the cd. Atsuko and I were both like children at the fairground - whooping, hollering and yee hahing like a couple of American golf spectators :-))))) There were also stops for sand sledging into a swimming pool and a rope slide into a lagoon, fantastic !!!!!
Nothing else to say, it was just brilliant :-)))))))

After a couple of hours of great fun we stopped for a well needed rest.

The best caipirinha we tasted.
